Chelsea beat Manchester City to sign Marc Cucurella from Brighton for more than £50m: reports FirstSportz

Chelsea sign Marc Cucurella from Brighton.

In his quest to leave the Amex Stadium this summer, Marc Cucurella has attracted keen interest from Manchester City, who are desperate for a left-back after Zinchenko’s departure. Chelsea reacted at the last moment and stole the player in front of Man City. The deal was valued at 50 million euros as confirmed by multiple sources and the contract was agreed until 2026.

Chelsea have lost many players in recent weeks, with Antonio Rudiger, Andres Christensen and Romelo Lukaku already agreeing deals with other clubs. With Cesar Azpilicueta still on the Barcelona books, Chelsea would remain adamant and hope to keep their star-studded captain for this season.

How are Chelsea developing with the arrival of Cucurella in their squad?

After the loss of their longtime owner Roman Abramovich to Russian ties, there have been many concerns and uncertainties surrounding several players’ contracts and salaries. Because of this, many players have already left for free and the defensive line-up looked very weak because of this. New owner Todd Boehly has responded very well to the fans and has already brought in a great player in Kalidou Koulkibaly to ease defensive concerns.

With Azpilicueta still in the team, Thomas Tuchel can continue his ideal 3-4-3 formation with Azpi, Koulibaly and Thiago Silva at his back. With Reece James and Marcos Alonso as first-choice wingers, Tuchel has plenty of options with Marc Cucurella joining the squad.

Manchester City have long been looking for a left-back and with the departure of Zinchenko it was only time for Guardiola to add Cucurella to his squad. Chelsea reacted quickly and hijacked the deal despite already having two left-backs in Chilwell and Alonso.
